This dish is as beautiful as it is tasty; a red and white creation that tastes great as a side dish/salad, as well as a dessert. I have been making and taking this dish to our holiday gatherings for over 25 years and everyone loves and requests it every year. It is an unusual yet perfect blend of tart and sweet.
